Robertsbridge United Reformed Church (formerly Robertsbridge Congregational Chapel) is a United Reformed Church place of worship in Robertsbridge, a village in the district of Rother in the English county of East Sussex. Built for Congregational worshippers in 1881 following their secession from a long-established Wesleyan Methodist chapel, it was the third Nonconformist place of worship in the village, whose nearest parish church was in the neighbouring settlement of Salehurst. Unlike the former Strict Baptist and Methodist chapels, which have both closed, it continues to serve Robertsbridge as a place of worship. Local architect Thomas Elworthy’s distinctive design—a “rich” and highly decorated blend of several styles—has divided opinion amongst architectural historians. English Heritage has listed the church at Grade II for its architectural and historical importance.
